So I went to see the doctor today about the pain in my lower leg.
First good thing: Doc is an ex-marathoner. He knows running and knows how badly I want to get back.
Second: He is convinced that I am only dealing with severe shin splints-not a stress fracture.
Third/ Treatment: Only 2 Weeks off and Ibuprofen 4x a day. Ice as needed. Cross train however I wish-just NO RUNNING.
He also said that after the 2 weeks, I should start as slowly as possible. Take things at an excruciatingly slow pace to try and prevent a recurrance.
